sleeve notes

'Til the Time We Meet Again was written for the 1985 Leicester Haymarket Theatre production of Lark Rise, using the tune of Michael Turner's Waltz.

The Task takes its title from the poem by eighteenth century English poet William Cowper. Cowper lived for much of his life in the small Buckinghamshire town of Olney, which was an important centre for the cottage industry of lacemaking. Part of Cowper's Vanity of the World is quoted in The Alcove. Lace “Tells” were work songs, sung or chanted while working at the pillow.

Thanks to Johnny Coppin for drawing our attention to Vive L'Amour and Masters of This Hall.
